The family of Dr. Santo Barbarino in conjunction with the Lynbrook High School Alumni family have established the Dr. Santo Barbarino Scholarship Fund; 501(c) (3) organization, DLN: 17053322306003. The Scholarship fund was created to honor the memory of Dr. Barbarino (“Dr. B”), who was an integral part of Lynbrook’s educational community for over 30 years. Dr. Barbarino was the Superintendent of the Lynbrook School District when he passed away suddenly in August of 2012.
During the 2014/2015 school year, the Fund distributed four monetary "Owls of Excellence” Scholarship Awards totaling $12,000. The awards supported areas of student effort “Dr. B” was passionate about: the arts, athletics and academics.
